Darius Syrossian (read our interview here) has cemented his place as one of the dance elite after a life-long commitment to house and techno which has seen him touch every major club and festival on Earth. His workaholic attitude has lead to him hosting his own parties, running his own label and hosting a monthly radio show – all of which fall under the Do Not Sleep banner.
In the party scene Syrossian made a name for himself when he began throwing weekly events at the now defunct Space Ibiza. Since then, Syrossian has taken the Do Not Sleep brand global with visits to New York, Berlin and Amsterdam, and the next stops scheduled in for London and San Francisco. Fresh from playing a sold out New Years day show alongside artists such as Patrick Topping and Heidi, Darius is on his way to Australia for a three date tour this month.
“It’s all house and techno and I’m not interested fads”, these words not only define the style and sound of Darius Syrossian, but also represent the principles by which he has successfully made his name as a DJ, producer, label boss and radio host at a global level.
Among a busy touring schedule, last year Darius took his Do Not Sleep party to Space Ibiza where he held a weekly residency, he also delivered a compilation for the esteemed Balance series and even put together an Essential Mix for Radio 1.
As a true workaholic, Darius Syrossian has been living and breathing, playing and producing house music for all of his adult life. Having served 14 years in a record shop, he has the grass roots knowledge and understanding that has helped him rise to the very top of the global pile. Having played gigs at every major club and festival in every continent, he has also produced and released music on a whole host of the biggest record labels out there, with his most recent work in 2016 appearing on taste making labels such as Mobilee sister label Leena, Material, Swiss label Definition:Music as well as releasing his huge track ‘Funkflex’ on vinyl only label Rimming Records as an unnamed artist. Also, lets not forget his productions on his own Do Not Sleep imprint that is releasing music on both vinyl and digital.
